Sculpture, Fine Art

Anthony Caro’s linear sculptures are ‘drawings in space’. Here for the first time Mary Reid addresses these pieces as a coherent body, united by their character of weightlessness. Her insightful text introduces the reader to the concept of linear sculpture, and the plates serve to highlight this important aspect of the sculptor’s career. Caro’s use of colour and his shifting attitude to various materials are also discussed to enhance the reader’s appreciation of this stylistic form. Used as an introductory book or as a resource for new interpretations of Caro’s work, this is an important and revelatory publication.
